The 2014 USA Olympic hockey roster was announced Wednesday following the conclusion of the Winter Classic between the Red Wings and Maple Leafs.

As expected, no Bruins made the team, though former B’s Phil Kessel [1] and Blake Wheeler [2] did. Wheeler made the team over Bobby Ryan, who is perhaps the biggest name left off the team. The roster is as follows:

Forward: David Backes, Dustin Brown [3], Ryan Callahan [4], Patrick Kane, Ryan Kesler [5], Phil Kessel [6], T.J. Oshie, Max Pacioretty [7], Zach Parise [8], Joe Pavelski, Paul Stastny, Derek Stepan, James van Riemsdyk, Blake Wheeler [9]

Defense: John Carlson, Justin Faulk, Cam Fowler, Paul Martin, Ryan McDonagh, Brooks Orpik, Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan Suter

Goalie: Jonathan Quick [10], Ryan Miller [11], Jimmy Howard
